My Disney+ app is no longer responsive on my fire-stick.

I actually have the Disney+ on my fire stick. Why this too is not responding either. Why is my Disney+app all of a sudden stopped working Sir???

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!
What happens when you open it?
I mean what do you see when you open the Disney+ app?

Customer Replay

It boots on and on forever till it tells me to contact you.

Please try to reset your Firestick first
Please carry out the following steps:

  1. With your Firestick turned on, press and hold the Center and Play buttons on the Firestick remote for fifteen seconds.
  2. Wait for the restart process to finish and launch the Disney Plus app. Check if it’s now working.

I was watching the App last week , I guess it was a free trail period. Now I'm even willing to get it on again and pay.

That is possible
I assume you had signed up for one of the free plans?

My brother helped me with this fire stick and he applied it for me. I know so little about restarting it.

Is your Fire Stick remote control at hand?

Customer Replay

I never knew much about my fire-stick until I explored and found Disney+there already

Customer Replay

Yes I have it next to me now.

You need to point the remote at your Firestick and hold those two buttons for 15 seconds.

Customer Replay

The remote I have to turn TV on and off right!? at my fire stick right??

No, your Firestick remote:

Customer Replay

I'm in settings on my fire-stick in Amazon Fire TV Remote now.

Please select MY FIRE TV and then RESTART

Customer Replay

It does not respond when I press it ,, but on the side it read ... Type is Voice Remote. Version I see ..13 and the Serial Number.

It does not respond to the remote control?

Customer Replay

The fire stick that is and trying to select Amazon Fire TV Remote it nothing.
Under that there's the option Add new Remote.

Are you browsing your Firestick menu or your TV menu?

Customer Replay

I'm in settings on the fire stick. Amazon TV Remotes I'm in now. Here I can add other Remotes.

*****, can you please look at this


Customer Replay

Controllers & Bluetooth Devices.

Can you please do the following:

  • Hold two buttons on your remote for 15 seconds
  • Select the button (the large round button in the middle)
  • Play / Pause button
  • Please hold them together for 15 seconds and tell me if your Firestick restarted
Customer Replay

I did and I heard a response. Like the Bluetooth connection sound. Is this right?

Please check if your Disney + works now

Customer Replay
